I have a ton of cookbooks.. I like reading through them and visiting online spots to get ideas. Not everything in every recipe suits me, so I improvise A LOT---.THANKS TO Spark People Recipes for some really good ideas. emoticon

I have several cookbooks and had a pretty routine rotation of meals, but I got pretty bored with all the same ol' options last year, so I've been trying a lot of new recipes from Pinterest.

What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.

I keep several cookbooks but my main ideas come from off the top of my head. I think about what I'm craving then I make a meatless version of it or if I only have certain ingredients, I find a way to combine them into a meal. I have made good things and...not so good things with that method. It makes cooking more interesting.

Sparkpeople's data base is loaded with wonderful veg*n recipies! Also, vegan blogs such as Oh, she glows and happy herbivore (many others too). As a lover of cookbooks (and a collection to prove that!), I still find the internet is a wonderful source. Mollie Katzen has several wonderful books.
I agree that using 4 or 5 recipies from a book makes it worthy of sitting on my shelf and the cost of it!

. I have over 20 Vegan cookbooks! My husband has even built me a bookshelf exclusively for my cookery books! I almost dare not buy another, but, as I have told him over and over again.. if you make just 5 recipes from a book, its paid for itself!
I also tested recipes for 2 vegan cookbook authors and was given their books as a thank you. Best books I have!!

I have found that Pinterest is a wealth of ideas for healthy eating! Just type in your preferences and pages of ideas and recipes come up!
